"As Seen On Shark Tank" products inside Target Store
for Season 6 Update
Mark Cuban broke the news about this new deal between ABC and Target Stores on his Facebook page a few days ago. According to Mark, "Target will soon have "As Seen On Shark Tank" section in over 1000 stores in the very near future".
I just got off the phone with the local Target Store inquiring if they are one of the lucky stores soon to carry the "As Seen On Shark Tank" Brands. It took a little time getting the manager on the phone, who was also the only person aware of this new deal. Considering there's over 1,800 Target Store's in the U.S,, and at least 1,000 stores will have a devoted section for popular Shark Tank Products, the odds are a little better than 50/50 our local Target Store will be chosen. Apparently the final list of store's has not been finalized, or at least not passed down to the management level at this time.
With such a great idea for all parties involved, (Shark Tank Show, Successful Products, ABC and Target Stores) something tells me this deal will continue to grow adding several more successful product's available in "ALL" Target Stores. Hopefully Target will take full advantage aligning themselves with more popular Shark Tank products in the near future, and give this Show an entire isle full of successful products. They might also consider getting a hold of Ignited USA (The Advertising Agency that designed the Shark Tank Swag Box for CNBC Tuesday's) and consider a more appropriate "eye popping" display instead of what appears to be a generic sign.
This little business expense would pay huge dividends, especially if they devote an entire theme-based Shark Tank Isle filled with successful products. With a little imagination, this partnership has the potential to drastically increase every one's bottom line. This would also be a great way to 'test' brand new up-and-coming Shark Tank products and packaging before committing to larger orders.
I might not remember the last time I was in a Target Store, but if they start aggressively promoting Shark Tank Products, then this is one store I will go out of my way to visit often. It's a great idea, especially if they continue to add new products and the space needed for a full blown theme-based isle.
